    June 2, 2017 - EDITED. Wrong TN.

    May 7, 2017 - Pop and pour brought into a restaurant; previously coravin'd 2 years ago. Black cherry, cassis, heavy leather, caramel on the nose. Elegant approach and mouthfeel; medium weight. Tobacco, cigar, BlackBerry, dark plum. Shows nice layering but lacking the depth of some HSS, I'm guessing at this point due to age. An outstanding wine still within its drinking window though on the back end of it. My last bottle and consumed at a good time.

    April 19, 2017 - Decanted about 40 minutes, great nose and dark red color. It feels well balance and still life ahead, I don't think it will keep on improving but can last another decade or more.
